Nancy Zieman's Tablet Keeper Blog TourI’m excited to kick off the Tablet Keeper Blog Tour today! Twenty bloggers have been selected to participate in this fun and creative Blog Tour. Clover sent each blogger a Tablet Keeper template set, plus all the findings (shapers, create-a-strap, hardware, stabilizer, etc.) For 20 days in January, a different guest blogger will showcase their Tablet Keeper creation. With the impressive lineup of bloggers, I know the creative options will be noteworthy! Plus, Clover gave us three product collections to give away as prizes! Scroll down for details.

During this blog tour, I know you’ll find artsy quilting and sewing techniques featured on both the E-Tablet and Paper Tablet options. Since the tablet keepers can be made in three sizes, you’ll find a technique that’s ideal for you! I’ve already detailed the basics of how to make an E-tablet Keeperand Paper Tablet Keeper in previous blog posts. Click and review!

Here’s my idea:

I selected the embroidery collection, Text Talk, which includes emoticons, smiley faces, and texting abbreviations. There are 117 embroidery designs: abbreviated phrases, smiley faces, Emoticons, full upper and lower case alphabets, numbers, etc. The unique part of this collection is that there are two placement stitching outlines to aid in perfect placement of the design no matter what size of Tablet Keeper you’re making.
